Merry Christmas, everyone! Well, 2015 is almost over and here I am with my last post for this year, so I thought and thought about what I would like to share with you. Then it came to me. I want to give each and every one of you a bag full of blessings and good wishes for the new year. So, I needed something to put them in, and what better way to present them to you than in a beautifully hand-decorated gift bag.
As you know, Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts is chock full of fabulous designs to help you with all of your crafting needs. And here is just one example.
I started with a plain, ordinary brown gift bag. Nothing special, but I hope you will agree that I managed to turn it into something quite nice, and it was so easy. I made this in an afternoon, including paint drying time.
Here is a short video tutorial of this quick and easy process.
Here are a few closeups of the bag.
